Prenotification possible at newly connected terminals

Now – at a large number of container terminals (both deepsea and shortsea), ferry terminals, inland terminals and an increasing number of depots in the Netherlands – shippers, forwarders, Customs agents and hauliers can easily submit prenotification of a cargo, visit and/or the accompanying Customs documentation. Portbase is the single, central point of entry for these notifications.

Newly connected terminals
From now on, you can also prenotify your Customs documents at: Combined Cargo Terminals (CCT), Rhenus Terminals Maasvlakte and Verbrugge Vlissingen. This enables the terminal to optimally prepare for the arrival of your containers. The overview below shows the services for which this applies.

Notification Export Documentation
• Combined Cargo Terminals (CCT)

Important! In the service Notification Import Documentation, the aforementioned terminals have been added to the selection list. If you are unable to select these terminals, it means you (still) need to sign a terminal contract with these terminals.

Such a terminal contract can be obtained using our application form for current clients. Next, to sign one of these contracts, you will select (in the form) only the additional terminals to which you are not yet able to submit prenotifications. Once you have completed and submitted the application form, these terminals will be activated for your use. If you have any questions, please contact
